Coffee Story for a Sunday Morning

A few years ago I read Norman Lear's autobiography Even This I Get to Experience. The late great film and television producer produced an easy and informative read. The book is full of memorable stories, with the following being one of my favourites:

Lear had a conflicted and complicated relationship with his father, Hyman ("Herman"), but he had some fond memories of his upbringing. One such memory is how his father would get up in the morning and savour his cup of coffee. (Herman loved life and lived it to the fullest ― including a few years in the slammer when Norman was a child.)

Many people are forever looking for the secret to a happier life. Maybe part of the answer is on the table in front of them.
